The Straw Family Farm in northeastern Oklahoma is a fully functional rescue farm caring for a wide variety of livestock including sheep, cows, goats, horses, chickens and more. During the summer visitors are welcome five days a week, including weekends, to experience what the farm does on a daily basis and to interact with the animals. During the winter they have reduced hours and are open anytime by appointment.
There are plenty of learning and activities to take part in on the farm. We are Life Lab Certified for teaching State Standards and do a great job of hiding it in fun. General farm visits are the most popular with Animal interaction being in full swing as you hand feed the many animals on the farm, hunt for eggs and learn about where your food comes from. Weather permitting, kids can also ride B'Day the cow or the horse on duty Learning is also not in short supply around the farm as adults find the lessons in wool processing, shearing, soap making, home steading and animal care fascinating. While the kids find fun in the barn with activities including rocket launching, nature scavenger hunts, marshmallow shooters and roping as well as many more.
Lessons available on the farm include things like crocheting, spinning, general animal care, processing wool and home steading. From garden soaps to roping to textiles, there is so much available to see and do, if you give us a call we will plan a visit tailor made to you.
